1 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 created man from the earth,
And returns him to it again.
2 He gave them few days, and a short time,
And also authority over that within it.
3 He gave them strength within themselves,
And made them according to His image,
4 And put the fear of man upon all flesh,
And gave him rule over beasts and birds.
5 They received the use of the five senses of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,
And in the sixth place He gave them understanding,
And in the seventh speech, an interpreter of the thoughts.
6 Counsel, and a tongue, and eyes, ears, and a heart,
He gave them to understand.
7 He filled them with the knowledge of understanding,
And showed them good and evil.
8 He put His eye on their hearts,
That He might show them the greatness of His works.
9 He appointed them to boast in His marvellous deeds forever,
That they might declare His works with understanding.
10 And the elect shall praise His qodesh Name.
11 Besides this He gave them knowledge,
And the Law of Ḥai for an inheritance.
12 He made an everlasting Covenant with them,
And gave them His Right-Rulings.
13 Their eyes saw the excellence of His esteem,
And their ears heard His esteemed voice.
14 And He said to them, “Beware of all unrighteousness.”
And He gave every man Command concerning his neighbour.
15 Their ways are ever before Him,
And shall not be hid from His eyes.
16 Every man from his youth is given to evil;
Neither could they make hearts of flesh for themselves from stony.
17 For in the division of the nations of the whole earth He appointed a ruler over every people;
But Yisra’ĕl is the portion of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄;
18 Whom being His first-born, He nourishes with discipline,
And giving him the light of His love, does not forsake him.
19 Therefore all their works are as the sun before Him,
And His eyes are continually upon their ways.
20 None of their unrighteous deeds are hid from Him,
But all their sins are before 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
21 But 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 showing favour and knowing His workmanship,
Neither left nor forsook them, but spared them.
22 The kind deeds of a man are as a signet with Him,
And He shall guard the good deeds of man as the apple of His eye,
And give repentance to His sons and daughters.
23 Afterwards He shall rise up and reward them,
And render their recompense upon their heads.
24 And to those who repent, He provides a return,
And comforts those whose expectancy is failing.
25 Return to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, and leave your sins.
Make your prayer before His face, and be guiltless.
26 Turn again to the Most High, and turn away from wickedness;
For He shall lead you out of darkness into the light of peace,
And intensely hate your abominations.
27 Who shall praise the Most High in the grave,
Except for those who live and give thanks?
28 Thanksgiving perishes from the dead, as from one who is not;
The living and perfect in heart shall praise 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.
29 How great is the kindness of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 our Elohim,
And His compassion to those who turn to Him in qodeshah!
30 For not all is within man,
For the son of man is not incorruptible.
31 What is brighter than the sun, yet its light fails?
So flesh and blood shall imagine evil.
32 He views the power of the height of the shamayim;
And all men are but dust and ashes.
